Located in front of the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Pena Francia, it includes a variety of tropical trees centered by a beautiful Swan Fountain from 1900. It is a pleasant, peaceful place to relax in the shade.

Just off the Port, this is a lovely place for a drink, a quick meal or just to relax in the shady pedestrianised square. It makes a good stop for coffee, lunch or evening drinks and meals and is always full of local life and culture.

This is the best place in Puerto to "people watch". It is surrounded by plenty of cafes and restaurants to suit most tastes and prices. There is a great play area for children. In the evenings the whole area is pretty lively so if you are looking for peace and quiet don't go there.Parking is easy using the harbour car... More

Very touristy but also seemed to be popular with locals - lots of lovely restaurants and cafes - great for people watching and eating/drinking. Some tourist shops and a play area for children.
